Woke up 30 mins ago and coded part of my map loading/drawing. Pretty good since all i did last night was come up with an idea. Got a whole game left now! No big deal…




I’m in and brainstorming

Thought I’d actually say I’m in since I’ve finally decided to actually do this compo – it is my first… which is both daunting and exciting at the same time.

At first I wasn’t too into the whole ‘Escape’ theme, but once I realized that ‘Escape’ could be anything with a little bit of a back story the ball got rolling.

I’ll be coding in C# and XNA because of the time constraint. I really wanted to use HTML5 and Javascript, but don’t feel I know it well enough to finish a good little game in the allotted time.

I think my game is going to be based on a hat that can camouflage itself on heads of various colors and has to escape… something… by blending in with the heads. There will be more to it of course, but we will have to see what I come up with and what ends up being coded and drawn!

Good luck everyone!
